  • Basement drain question

    I have purchased an older (1957) home. The basement has a drain in the laundry area. After I removed what was left of the original drain cover and cleaned out the drain I discovered that water drains out of a pipe that is horizontal to the floor. There is another larger chamber at the bottom of the drain that collects water and does not drain. Should this larger area be draining as well and is just clogged? Or should it be drained and capped off? I have attached a photo (it's not pretty).

    Thanks
